Biomation Productions is a social enterprise which provides this exact type of advice. They help children and young people to create informative animated films which explore issues people want to talk about. The film ‘One Small Step – Making Friends in New Places’ tackles the issue of meeting new people, giving advice for every step of the way. TrueTube is proud to host a range of Biomation films, including this one. Shy, likeable aliens are used as the main characters, symbolising the alienation people can feel in so many situations. The aliens travel around the galaxy, meeting new life forms on different planets. Feeling shy and isolated, they take the advice provided and soon feel at home. If you’re looking for a film to approach this topic in a gentle but efficient way, this could be the perfect resource to show your students. It is especially suitable for Year 6s visiting your school for the first time, or when they begin as Year 7s in September. Everybody deserves to feel comfortable in new surroundings, whether you’re an alien from Mars, or a shy student at the back of the class.
